Earlier this week, a young American boy began an inadvisable critique of the British way of life.

"Red buses everywhere!" he shouted from his keyboard. "What the f--- is a scone?!" he questioned. "Why do yall say 'maths'," he continued.

His musings sparked a backlash from our island nation - and it's fair to say America was fair well put in its place.

So, a word of caution for peoples around the world, if you don't want to face a similarly angry reaction from a British person - never, ever utter any of things to them:

1.

We've run out of teabags...

  • Nooooo

2.

If it wasn’t for the US, you’d be speaking German right now.

  • Yes, thanks for joining the war two years late

3.

Is it always raining in Britain?

  • Yes, now please stop reminding us

4.

Yo-gert

  • As in "yoghurt". It's definitely pronounced yogg-ert

5.

When you explain that you come from somewhere in Scotland, Wales, the South-West or the North...

Is that near London?

6.

Ah-loo-mi-num

  • ALUMINIUM: ah-luh-min-ee-um

7.

Queue etiquette is NOT a thing.

  • Oh yes it is, and we're masters of it.

8.

  • Did you forget to finish your word?

9.
